Price Per Unit (PPU) refers to the price of a unit of the product. The definition of unit varies by product. For example, if you sell 400 grams of coffee beans for 800 JPY, a PPU of 2 JPY/g will be displayed on the product detail page, as the measurement "unit" of the product is grams. PPU is generated from the following product information that you provide to us: the product price, the product measurement in unit_count (the weight, volume, length, area, or count of units), and product unit of measure in unit_count_type (Gram, Milliliter, Meter, Sq Meter, Count).
